Biden announced a host of top national security picks on Monday, naming Antony Blinken for Secretary of State, Alejandro Mayorkas for Secretary of Homeland Security, Avril Haines for Director of National Intelligence, Linda Thomas-Greenfield for UN Ambassador, Jake Sullivan as National Security Advisor, and John Kerry as climate czar.
“America is back. Ready to lead the world, not retreat from it,” Biden declared on Tuesday, flanked by running mate Kamala Harris and his new security team. Biden’s six security specialists all served in the Obama administration in some capacity, and Biden’s speech suggested that his administration would pick up where Barack Obama left off.
Biden promised a departure from President Donald Trump’s “America First” brand of isolationism, vowing to assert US dominance “both in the Pacific as well as the Atlantic. All across the world.”
Biden’s picks all cut their teeth during Barack Obama’s two terms in the White House. However, in a move reflective of his party’s recent ‘woke’ turn, Biden chose to highlight their racial and gender identities when introducing them.
“We’re going to have the first woman lead the intelligence community,” he boasted. “The first Latino, an immigrant, to lead the Department of Homeland Security, and a groundbreaking diplomat at the United Nations,” he added, the latter a reference to Thomas-Greenfield, who is black.
This is so rare and so deeply, thrillingly true. https://t.co/ggSOZIOuST— Samantha Power (@SamanthaJPower) November 24, 2020
